Comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo is joining ESPN’s "Sunday NFL Countdown" as a contributor.

“As a sports fan, ESPN has always been the place to be,” Caliendo told ESPN Front Row. “This network is why I graduated [from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee] with a broadcasting degree in the first place — and now I finally get to use my degree!”

Caliendo will make a handful of other appearances on the three-hour pregame show during the regular season and playoffs, primarily in taped comedy segments. His first appearance is Sunday.
